All-in-one package for schools
The Locatify Education Package is designed to improve the learning experience by creation and gamification.
The package includes:
MOTIVATE STUDENTS TO DISCOVER THE ENVIRONMENT
GoldHunt is a mobile app that allows students to play competitive treasure hunt games using smart devices. The app shows a map with treasure locations and where the player is located. When players approach the treasures they have to answer questions or solve challenges, like memory card games to earn points or digital prizes. The games can be played in teams or solo and all games are created in the Creator CMS by educators or students themselves.
The Treasure Hunt Games are a great way to encourage students to explore and engage with their environment and can be a great introduction to basic computer programming.
The Treasure Hunt Games are easy to create and allow for re-usable education material that can be shared between classrooms.
GoldHunt has similar features as TurfHunt, which has been especially popular in the Nordic Counties. GoldHunt is specially designed for students and has no third party in-app advertising like TurfHunt.
